Former Miami Dolphin Kenny Stills Arrested After Breonna Taylor Protest

A former player for the Miami Dolphins faces charges after taking part in a protest for Breonna Taylor.

Kenny Stills, who left Miami for the Houston Texans last year, was arrested along with 86 others.

The group reportedly marched to the home of the Kentucky Attorney General, demanding action against the officers who killed Taylor back in March.

The wide receiver was in court on Wednesday for a felony charge of intimidating a participant in the legal process and a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.

Breonna Taylor was shot eight times after police served a warrant at her home. The target of the raid was a suspected drug dealer, who police arrested miles away the same night. Taylor's death sparked protests nationwide.

28-year old Stills is considered an outspoken advocate for social equality. He was one of many players who routinely kneeled during the national anthem.

He once called out Dolphins owner Steven Ross for hosting a fundraiser for President Trump's re-election campaign.
